the australian dollar, canadian dollar, singapore dollar and the euro will be the strongest currencies going forward. the reason is -- david: as good as gold though? >> gold will be the best every time. no question about that because even the australian reserve bank which i would say australia is a very strong currency, a lot of inflows in the small capital market, but even they, the reserve bank of australia cutting rates. they are all going to go down somewhat against gold but on a relative basis some currencies will do better than others. >> where does the u.s. dollar fit into all of this, michael? >> we're going to see i think a year of two halves of the u.s. dollar. first half of the year, continued dollar weakness. the second half of the year i think we will see the dollar gain some ground against the euro, certainly against the yen. david: michael, one thing that scares a lot of people, we saw at different times where one country tries to make its export goods cheaper by devaluing their currency and its neighbor will try to do the same and there will be a war back and forth and eventu
the dollar. concern about the strength of the euro overall could be a threat. undercurrent to the u.s., which looks like to be a negative one. >> the big macro, everything out of japan, not so great. but the united states banking story, i think, is as you mentioned, carl, is it a real u.s. economy, what is the read on it. people are doing better. and this is a section that was terrifically performing in the s&p last year. and you could argue, wait a second, it's run ahead. but it's not selling off today. i thought people thought it would sell off. we're not getting that kind of judgment. >> a lot of up moves on the back of goldman sachs earnings. take a look at the financials.

of the euro currency. boy, we went from basically trading a 133, now to trading 131, and today is a big down day. one market that actually is getting a little bit of a breath, but nothing on the scale of what the dollar and some of the other currencies are gaining on the euro, the dollar/yen. the yen has improved marginally today. but we're still on 87 handle on the dollar versus the yen. you want to pay attention to foreign exchange. we still have some other data today. the minutes we'll get later will be scrutinized, especially considering, you know, federal reserve and how it figures into a post-cliff presealing debate. >> i'm glad you brought up the euro. dennis gartman did that earlier this morning and we didn't talk about it at the time. what do you think is happening? why has the euro turned around here? >> well, to me, i think that what the euro represents, or what the relationship between the euro and other currencies represent continues to be exaggerated by shifts in the ultimate dynamics of trying to score the economy. then you had in the big position growth that we've seen, and t
, disappointing industrial production numbers in spain and the uk. but the euro is at a nine-month high this morning. we begin with the s&p, a five-year high. a lot riding on bank earnings. the report's not perfect. american express joining the list of financials that are cutting jobs. >>> best buy's troubles continue. they're not the only retailer under pressure this morning. jcpenney capping a bad week. >>> boeing under official view as a probe is taken on the plane. a cracked inshield and oil leak. >>> remember a cheaper iphone? a top apple executive said forget it. the company continues to focus on china. >>> we'll kick off with wells fargo, kicking off q4 results. the lending business came in a little bit lower than many analysts expecting. the numbers coming out after american express announced plans to cut 5,400 jobs and the s&p closed at fresh five-year highs. jim, it's been said, wfc, probably the most important report of the week. what kind of grade do we give it? >> the whisper was they weren't going to do this anyway. i don't know anyone would think they would -- people were
, the euro, we should note, is hitting 11-month highs against the u.s. dollar. marginal changes on a percentage basis. a road map this morning starts off with apple. even more doubts about the demand for the iphone 5 sending shares below. >> did you see your paycheck on friday? the payroll tax hike obviously kicking in for many americans. felt like a pay cut. will this be a temporary shock or a headwind as stocks hover at five-year highs. >> ubs achoirs tnt after a commission throws up road blocks. >>> to the top story. in the pre-market, we've seen apple shares fall below $500 for the first time in 11 months. the tech giant has cut its orders for iphone 5 components because of weaker than expected demands. screen orders for january to march quarter have fallen about half. the company had planned to order. apple said to cut orders for components other than screens. now, jim, we've had sort of this concern about demand for the iphone 5. i think last week when deutsche bank came out with the note from the japanese team, specifically citing this very issue, that's when the concerns

coming in stronger in the real star here. the euro topping 135 for the first time since april 2010. and strengthening even more after the gdp release. overnight in iasia, the nikkei p from 2010. the road map starts with the markets. today may be the day some milestones are hit. we're just about 2% away from dow 14,000. a level we have not traded above since october 17th, 2007. the s&p 500 less than 4% below its october '07 record high. can the bulls overcome the news of the surprise contraction in gdp. >> anticipation building, at least certainly here for research in motion. that being the blackberry 10, will it be enough to sustain the run. we'll take a look. >> amazon shares rocketing higher this morning. investors looking past the revenue and weak guidance, focusing instead on the gains in operating in gross margins. shares are set to open at record highs. >> look at chesapeakchesapeake,d of directors announcing the founder retiring in april. >> we do begin with a stunning gdp report. the economy contracted to 0.1% in the fourth quarter. first decline since 2009. this as we rema
. we have to grow profitably, jim. >> right. >> if you look at our revenues, we report in euros, but i'll give you round numbers in dollars. we're over a $20 billion u.s. software company. we're delivering much more than $5.5 billion in profit. so the company has to grow profitably. most importantly, though, we want to focus on the customer. if we can have the users of our technology love us, we'll reach the 1 billion users by 2015. we'll be a greater than 20 billion euro software company which is somewhere closer to $30 billion. and that 35% operating margin so we deliver a lot of flow through to shareholders. this is who we are. profitable revenue growth driven by customer innovation, it is all about winning for the customer. >> you've also tapped in -- i've been trying to figure out ever since i heard it on the intel call how to make money off the tablet, which is the phone and the tablet. you guys have figured it out. >> our big idea is to be device agnostic. so all the devices are supported by -- >> you don't care. >> it's all good. >> samsung -- >> it's all good. we want to run b
. the currency markets, open for trading for a lot longer today than stocks. the euro is still below 133, the recent high. it's interesting to see that the risk-on currencies are a bit to the upside. >> watch gold, too. i think gold, 12th year of good performance. >> yes. >> i would emphasize gold should be part of people's portfolios. >> while i don't disagree with you, because i've been wrong on gold two years in a row, silver better performer last year than gold. >> numbers are numbers. i find that the gld is just a very, you know, good way, i hope it goes down, the rest of your portfolio goes up. but remember, in the last 12 years we've had deflation, inflation, good control, bad control, but gold is steady because gold is in short supply in the world. >> i thought we were being positive. i'm optimistic for the next year or so. ten years out, different story. oil prices, right? while they've gone up in the last couple weeks, gas prices are down. >> gasoline. >> gasoline. and nat gas remains fairly low. >> nat gas at four-month lows right now. >> let's not underestimate the extra mone
. quick check of currencies, the euro/dollar the focus of a debate this morning on "worldwide exchange." a lot of people saying not so fast if you think that the rising dollar in tandem with rising risk is going to be a theme of the year. today we're seeing the euro/dollar give up .1% to 1. 1.3069. and the dollar/yen after reports out of japan saying there will be coordination between the bank of japan and fiscal authorities to try and get to the 2% inflation target. nothing too concrete. again, the proof will be in the poudre figure i can use a -- in the pudding if i can use a popular phrase this side of the bond. back to you. >> kelly services. i like that -- talent. talent, kelly. >> talent at work. >> talent at work. thanks. >>> coming up, the nation's biggest banks preparing to post quarterly results in the coming days. the inside line next. >>> first as we head to break, a look at yesterday's winners and losers. at 1:45, the a >>> that's hard. >> you stink. the wing and a fractured beak.o surgery was successful, but he will be in a cast until it is fully healed, possibly several
at the pound side. let's look at the euro versus the pound. as you see on this chart, pound's getting hit pretty hard. this is a 13-month low on the pound. let's switch around some of these controls trades. look how fascinating this is. let's not pare that losing pound to the pound/yen. pound/yen is at 31-month highs. if we look at the euro/yen, it's at 21-month highs. if we look at the dollar/yen, it's a 31-month high. even though the pound is having a tough time against the eurozone, everybody's having a party against the yen. these cross trades have been one of the biggest surprises to many for 2013 thus far. and it hasn't taken long. the other thing, of course, durables today is one of the reasons we're up several basis points, again, along with stocks. but if you look at the proxy for capital spending, up only .2% for the month of december. that was a little disappointing and maybe one of the more important components of today's durable series. jim, back to you. >> thank you, rick. let's check out the latest news in energy. sharon? >> the fact that hess is exiting the refining busine
. >> thank you very much. what will it mean for the euro if the ecb cuts interest rates at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning? good morning. positioning for a cut? >> i'm positioning short. but i don't think they're going to cut this time around. there's so many reasons for the ecb to want to cut rates. i think we're looking at an actual cut three months out. german economic data has been pretty weak. i feel like that the position for euro wants to go to the downside. we saw poor german data, obviously the core of the european union. and the reason the ecb hasn't let the euro go. i think they're going to prep the markets next time for a cut. >> what are your levels? >> well, 131.20 was interesting. a level we tried to break through all fall. we finally got above it. now the market in the technicals should be support. it didn't hold the support. you want to go short the euro. >> are you a dollar bull overall? are you getting behind other trades on the basis that the greenback could go higher, higher interest rates in america? >> absolutely, simon. the dollar has this underlying bid ever since the fed
rose to 11.18% in november. that is a euro area high. if you move forward into decent, you can see the aumt of prices. they're prizing in some easing from the central bank down the road. quick look at what is happening at the bond curve. 5.1, just under 5.1%. the spanish treasury outlining the funds you will need for 2013. you can expect they're going to take as many advantage of these conditions as possible. italy, 4.3% on the ten-year. the gilt yield, above 2%. we will explore what's happening with growth going forward. slipping over now to currencies, here is what we've seen some interesting moves. may not look like much this morning. the euro/dollar is roughly flat. but the dollar/yen moving down by about .3%. it was really actually some support from the euro that came from comments out of japan. japan will be investing, bonds buying in the esm. that is an order to indicate some level of support for the eurozone project. but it also works to help, yes, weaken the yen. on that note, back over to you. >> it's always about the yen. kelly evans in london. the can. thank you. >> we'
's a couple of things. he said the victory lap. he said we relaunched the euro in 2012. a lot of talk with chris at this teen legarde in europe today. 2015, talking about this growth in the back half. i think draghi's intentions today were not to mess things up. the general feeling here is that what the ecb has done with the current situation, perhaps created the underlying conditions for growth. >> i hosted a dinner with christine legarde last night. one of the things that came up mario draghi said this morning that maybe we have good fall back into a problem again. >> well, that's a good question. but what we're hearing is this new buzz phrase out of davos, which is gsp. >> what is that? >> global stability put. i think larry summers may have been the one to coin this phrase. i heard it this morning when i met with a bunch of central bankers at a breakfast this morning. this phrase keeps coming up. the idea you have japan, you have the european central bank and you now have the fed obviously full throttle on monetary policy, underpinning and, you know, we meet here now in davos, the
look at the euro versus the dollars, wow, euro is screaming today. you look at the euro/yen, that's screaming as well. the dollar/yen is screaming as well. so the dynamic of the yen continuing to be under pressure. will this be a huge move? many think, if you talk to some of the japanese officials, they're say it's just getting back to a reality after the end was pretty much decimated about a year ago with respect to too strong relative to the other currencies. no matter how you slice it, all that meats is where we are now and where we're going in the future. >> thank you we'll find out the latest movements in energy. sharon, take it over. >> it's all about algeria. a lot of traders are paying attention to the ongoing hostage situation at the gas field where islamist militants had attacked that facility and still holding some folks hostage there. we have learned from the algerian news agency that about 45 hostages, including some americans had escaped the complex, but still bp is confirming that the situation remains unresolved. it tellses it has confirmation that five of its empl

[ bell ringing ] >> at the nasdaq, starz celebrating its spin-off from liberty media. >> there's speculation about starz. but when i talked to a number of people who run various media companies, it might have been considered as buyers of that. they're saying, not me, check with that guy, and he said, not me, check with that other guy. we'll see if there's a potential acquirer of starz. >> netflix yesterday in the conference call, hastings was saying the great cable channels need us. you can't just jump in. before "breaking bad" you need a stream. >> netflix stepped in where starz has stepped out. >> s&p gainers for the year, netflix number one. >> is that true? >> up almost 59%. number two. best buy, number three dell, if you can believe that. >> name me three stocks that have come back from the dead
. good morning. >>> becky, good morning. i wanted to show what's happening across the euro stock 600. a generally quiet session. we're down .3% so far in trade this morning. that might have more to do with something happening here at the bottom of the index. the absolute dogs in the europe stock 600 this morning are the oil services. we can show you what's happening. look at the saipem shares once we get through the borses. saipem shares down in the range of 35%. this comes after they took a couple of hours to open this morning. let me show what's happening. 35% for this company. it's europe's biggest oil services provider by market cap. last night came out and warned about the profit outlook it's seeing for 2013. now itself's looking at revenues -- sorry, of earnings of 750 million euro, down from 1.7 billion that the market was expected. this is based on review of contracts based mainly in the leaf, nigeria and -- the middle east, nigeria and algeria. order backlogs, more worry about that. delay of major contract. bottom line, this company comes out in barclay's, for example, calli
cents. 9401. the ten-year note is yielding 1.829%. the dollar right now is up against the euro. again, another gain which is 1.3348. this morning, it's down against the yen. and gold prices this morning are up by about $11, $1680.70 an ounce. >>> and it's time now for the global markets report. kelly evans is standing by in london. and it's more poofy hair today. you didn't walk through the fog on the way to work, right? oh, it's a wig, it says. it says it's a wig behind you where it says minus .44% right now. >> or, does it? yes, that's right. there are signals coming through this every day just to see if people are paying attention. >> so weird. wig. >> yes. the polish board here is in the red, joe. it is not a wig it takes that on from time to time. we have seen a mixed picture. we have seen a weaker picture as the trading session has gotten under way. i want to point out the xetra dax is down .1%. our underperformer along with the peripheries is down about .3%, as well. after german gdp figures, europe's strongest, biggest economy came in surprisingly weak fourlt fort quarter. tha
yet. >> all right, rebecca, i have two for you. number one is that i'm reading that the euro crisis this year is going to go on the back burner even though nothing's been settled. it just seems like people aren't as concerned about it. so, i guess that explains the euro's move. and then, this news out of japan that kelly's all -- talks about all the time. >> she's teed up on. >> she's very teed up on that. and reading some of the stuff that abe is getting accomplished, it is different. i mean they're going to do -- they're going to -- >> they're going to out-fed the fed. >> exactly. and you know, they haven't had -- do you remember the last time they've had 2% inflation? >> twice in the last two decades. briefly. one on the back of a tax increase. >> just really brief. >> they've flirted with 2% and that's come back -- >> you think they can orchestrate that? >> i'm dubious for now. but if you have a better u.s., a quiet europe, a better china, there's more hope relatively speaking that you could get enough global momentum, because japan at the end of the day, still is a very open ec

their currency. look at this chart, they seem to have been somewhat successful. this is the euro versus the swiss. there's been a major appreciation of the euro. it's basically at 20-month highs. what's fascinateding is, now look at the next chart. we don't have negative yields in a swiss two-year anymore. see how the charts correlate? basically that's a barometer. funding issues have receded, swiss are getting back to normalcy. now it's all about growth and employment. and all of that information comes out at the end of the week. david faber, back to you. >> all right. thank you very much, mr. santelli. well, yesterday's shares of hess up rather sharply in part because of the company's announcement of a number of different things it's doing refining its assets. interestingly it didn't react as much as one might have anticipated given today's move from what we learned is likely to be a move by elliott associates on the company from an activist perspective. this morning we got that move. and boy, did we ever get it. the stock itself moving up sharply. let me quickly give you some of the particular

, right? proceed to have linkage to the troubled euro and its accoutremes and away from the italian bond market or overstressed french and spanish counterparts and got our heads handed to us. similarly, owning tech when tech is often considered heavily dependent on europe. as much as 20% or 25% of the earnings of tech are derived from the continent and typically it is deadly. we know this because they don't dodge it on the conference calls. that's how you learn about it. the analysts won't let them get away with it. all you got to do is listen to the q&a. if you're in a company with european exposure you will hear one out of every two or three questions about europe. asia, about china. you want preventive earnings season medicine, go through the previous calls of the companies. if the plurality of the questions are about europe, you know you're probably going to be in for a bruising next time. that's what the analysts focus on and force the companies to talk about. as correlated with europe as many tech and bank stocks are, it is china that controls so many of the cyclicals. the smoketac
talking about for weeks and it's been a home run, the euro/yen. we're not at the best levels of the day, but it is a friday. at least on trading floors, fridays have something in common. usually a little evening up with the markets. maybe look for some of these currency trends to run out of gas at least on a day trading basis. >> thank you, rick. don't forget the lift on china, gdp. sharon? >> the gainer here, leading the gains in the commodity sector based on that data out of china on growth industrial production, also keep your eye on what is happening in terms of the precious metals. we're looking at gold prices that have dipped a little bit here. not able to meet that resistance at the moving average. but silver continues to take off here. silver is actually the gainer for the week. the biggest gainer in the commodities complex for the week. we're looking at silver, actually silver coins running out of the u.s. there's so much investor demand for them. that's the story a lot of traders are talking about this morning. we're also keeping an eye on the wti oil price after it hit a four
-fledged member. using the euro and everything else. i guess it makes it less likely that they'll adopt a common currency. if they're thinking about leaving the union. >> absolutely. no, there's a widespread sense of relief that britain isn't more closely tied in. if you leak at the performance of the economy, the fact britain has its own central bank, it can pursue monetary policies or policies appropriate for britain and not have to worry about other member states certainly is being taken as a sign of relief. and there's very little sentiment certainly for joining the euro now. although i will say the bank of england numbers fight they're not happy with how strong sterling is. they think currency should be weaker and it could help performance going forward. echoing the currency that we're starting to hear this year. >> no talk about becoming the 51st state which they probably have wanted to do for a while given how we excelled after we broke off. they could come back into the fold, perhaps joining the u.s. and adopt the dollar if they really wanted some -- any talk of that at this point? would
to break, let's take a look at the world currencies. the euro still hanging in there. the local >> @22 minutes past the hour, i have your fox news minute. defense secretary leon panetta met in london to discuss a hostage situation in algeria. he says terrorists will find no sanctuary caught refuge in algeria or anywhere. reporting about 100 of 132 foreign hostages have been freed from the bp gas plant. reuters announced that they are willing to trade two american hostages for -- meanwhile, the conflict in neighboring malley is echoing. the first 900 troops to help the army paddling al qaeda linked rebels. a top nigerian officer says they have been training islamic terrorists in nigeria. troops are also joining the anti-rebel operation. those are your headlines. dennis: thank you. it is time for your media minute. today, didn't lance make the sale? he went on oprah last night. he apologized for doping and lying about it for like 12 or 13 years. >> did you ever take banned substances to enhance your cycling performance? >> yes. >> yes or no, was one of those band substances epo? >> yes.
. will you be afraid it could be much worse, euro crisis or debt ceiling or china hard landing, would it really spook you to the point that you get more nervous. nobody's bearish about earnings right now. they aren't. people think it's a -- the numbers are too high and they'll slowly come down, but they're not worried about a recession like they were in the fall, summer and fall of 2011. look, i think the earnings numbers will come down. if the multiple expands, it will be because people believe the policy will be there forever. if you're me, you're worried a little bit more about the fed balance sheet and the fact that it obviously robs from the future to do this unconventional policy. i don't really want to gamble that is a great long-term strategy. >> we've got to wrap up. i give you a lot of credit. you work for a firm that's got a year's retail platform and probably benefits from people buying stocks. do you ever get pressure from management at all? >> never at all. to be honest, i work at a firm with a bunch of great people. my job is to make people think. when you have a framew
.s. dollar. but you can see right now, the dollar is down against the euro, which is back up at 1.3361. the dollar is up against the yen, 89.31. and gold prices this morning have gained a little bit of ground. up $7.70 to $1,668730. right now it's time for the global markets report. let's get over to kelly evans would is standing by in london. >> kelly, good morning. becky, good morning. i heard joe's comment about my hair. i will get back to that later, but i will say it was snowing earlier. it's beautiful. but that's not responsible for any notable change in look. just take a quick look at what's been happening wind me in europe. we're in the green for the most part behind bigger than expected industrial production. i wanted to show smu stocks because it's merger news monday. you guys have briefly mentioned a couple of these. down there, you can see swatch is up 3.8% after saying it's going to buy the julie business harry winston. we saw harry winston at the golden globes last night or at least you guys did. i certainly wasn't up. generali,'s new ceo looking to shed capital shar
only need to look at two charts. the first chart is the euro/yen. this comes back to the highest levels since the summer of 2011. when you include the dollar/yen in that chart, you have to go back an extra year. we're comping to the summer of 2010. in either case, the dynamic is the same. i keep harping on it, and it continues to be the best trade that the fx traders are dealing with for the last three or four months. that is, long anything against the yen. carl, back to you. >> thanks a lot, rick. talk to you in a little while. let's check out the latest moves in metals. >> good morning, carl. let's start with the slide in gold futures down a dollar may not seem like so much. when you look at the fact that gold is below $16.50 an ounce, a key technical level there, that is the reason why many traders say there's more bullish momentum in the gold market. add to that the fact that the latest report said the bullish bets for gold are at the lowest levels we've seen since august. a lot of investors are on the sidelines waiting to see what happens with the next round of budget talks. and no
of the euro is not likely anymore, and that's clearly the case. i think draghi has done a terrific job. and number three getting through the leadership transition in china and further stimulation in china. all of those three things are more positive than they have been at any point in the last several years. >> in no doubt about it. in terms of europe. you have the election in italy, bonds due, interest on the bonds due in spain. do these represent hiccups do you think? >> i think they're just challenges or marks in the journey. look at what the progress has been in europe. the progress with the fiscal constraint in portugal, in ireland, in spain. the role monti has played in italy and the leadership he's given that country. the steadfastness of merkel in germany. the fiscal restraint in the uk. all of these are saying we get it collectively. we need to show restraint, but we need to restructure at a pace our societies can absorb so we're going to have a continued series of steps. there's no big bang answer. >> speaking of the u.s. for a moment, a number of banks are getting out of fix
chaotic place right now. you have a people associated with the arab spring. you have the euro crisis. you have a global recession. you have a rising china. it is a very a out of world right now. i'm not sure that it's going to be less -- it is a very chaotic world right now. i'm not sure that it's going to be less chaotic if we pull back, because bad actors will fill that power vacuum. host: james kitfield of the "national journal." caller: google james morris, r ussia today, you will see that it is a spinoff --sia russia today, you will see that it is as enough -- a spinoff. guest: they kind of backed the idea that assad just stay in power. israel likes the status quo. the arab spring totally reshuffles the strategic calculus for israel, especially with the peace treaty. the israelis are very nervous about a lot of the repercussions from the arab spring. are they pushing for this rebellion that gets rid of assad? not to my knowledge. it has been really focused on the shiite gulf countries like saudi arabia -- sunnis in the saudi arabia. saudi arabia, qatar, and others have been very wo
. that helped push the euro to the highs of the day. we're showing you the ten-year yield for spain over the last year. it's down -- we wanted to give you context. remember it was the summer when they were getting very nervous about 7% yields. now we're down to 5%. some of the spanish bonds very long term. due in 2041. so they have clearly regained some of the confidence of the markets. take a look at this six-month chart. the big decline in particular of nearly 30% when it comes to their long-term interest rates. european stocks, they were choppy today though. driven in part by a german news report that said german regulators are running a simulation on what would happen if banks were forced to split their retail and investment activities. think of german glass steagall. so they got hit particularly hard, falling more than 3% before recovering off the lows. there were rumors denied by the bank that they'd offer a profit warning. you can see the big hit here. the overall german market improved after the confidence data came out in the country. better than expected. but still, an overall
're talking about the euro currency versus the greenback. jim, back to you. >> great, rick, thank you. new shift in platinum and gold prices. a lot going on with gold. let's go to sharon epperson at the nymex. >> jim, we have not seen this since this spring. platinum prices now being more expensive than gold. we're looking at platinum rose above 1690 an ounce this morning. gold prices right around 1677 an ounce. we haven't seen this in ten months' time. but we have been telling you since the start of the year, that this is the year for platinum. that the supply issue is facing that market. the fundamental issues, a big reason analysts are looking for platinum to outperform gold this year. we are hearing from anglo american platinum in south africa. of course, the largest producer of lat numb in the world, saying it is going to close several of its mines in south africa and wants to return to profitability. it's worried about slow demand and rising costs. we're watching what's happening in the natural gas market, because natural gas reached the highest interday level so far this year on the
2%. the dollar has been something to watch in terms of the euro. but even more against the yen and finally gold was -- after the fed comments about maybe not, you know, being accommodative forever. hit the gold markets pretty hard last week. >> it's time now for the global markets report. ross westgate standing by in london across the pond. mr. westgate. >> hey, andrew. thank you very much for that. you can see after the gains we had last week, softer this morning. decliners outpacing advancers by a ratio of around 6 to 3, somewhere around that margin. the ftse 100, when you're a stock in general up at 22-month highs, friday, up .5%. right now, the if it is sfts is down .25%. we're not far away from the all-time highs on the xetra dax 7740.78 is up near the all time high. the cac 40 is down .5%. ibex up .1%. no doubt about the standouts, that is indeed the banks after the basel committee that supervisors bank regulation, says the liquidity cover ratio, which is the thing that forces banks to hold enough cash and easy to sell assets, they're changing that in terms of what they n
. these are all measured in dollars. when there is a sense of crisis in the currency, whether they are euros or dollars, large investors are looking for their value. where is their value out there? where can they put their currencies? if you look back to 2008 -- that was when we saw the first major spike in the price of global food. we saw a sense that we cannot want to put money in equities. real estate was tanking. the debt market was tanking. where do we put all of this cash we are sitting on? in commodities. a bunch of academic studies came out same commodities were a legitimate form of asset allocation. instead of just putting our money in stocks and bonds and mutual funds, now you will see a lot of money managers allocating assets into commodities. this is only possible through newfangled derivatives through wall street, electronically traded funds. that is the way food becomes an asset in your portfolio. the problem is that those asset allocations and those newfangled derivatives have an inflationary effect on the price of food globally. host: here is the first call for you from georg
